Magnetic North is finally heading north and taking the festival to Whitehorse, YT from June 9-18, 2016. As I contemplate my programming choices for each year’s festival, I always look for common threads and ideas that tie the shows together, and Whitehorse is no exception.
The theme for next year’s festival is all about seeking new experiences and Navigating New Dimensions. Whether contemplating universal isolation, searching for our inner hero, or meeting strangers across time and space, Magnetic North 2016 will challenge you to open your heart and mind to experience a new way of seeing.
So pack your bags and get yourself to Whitehorse! Whether you come for the shows, or you come simply because you’ve never been north, you won’t be disappointed. I know I say this every year (because the festival is always a must-do event), but Magnetic North 2016 promises to be one of the most thrilling festivals yet. Come experience Canadian theatre in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It will definitely change you.
